Toyota Supra 2023 Review, Specs, Performance And Pricing

The all new Toyota Supra 2023 is a collaboration with the hated 2019 BMW Z4, sharing its chassis, drivetrain, and other components. While it may never be able to shake image associated with hypothetical German dependability, Toyota says that there are enough differences in the tune and overall final product to distinguish the two cars significantly.

The car built in Austria by Magna Steyr and driven by a turbocharged 3.0 liter inline 6 cylinder BMW engine connected to an 8 speed automated gearbox, as well as adaptive suspension with Normal & Sport driving modes. A turbocharged 2.0 liter 4 cylinder engine will be added to range in 2021. They also offered a 6 speed manual variant to the GCC market in 2023.

New Toyota Supra 2023 is the smallest of the five versions, a two seater with no back seat & little luggage room. The Supra, which is roughly the size of a Toyota 86, costs twice as much and competes with premium badged German sports cars. The base 2023 Toyota Supra model comes equipped with a 6.5 inch center touchscreen entertainment system with Bluetooth & Alcantara trimmed seats.

The top of the line Supra comes with a bigger 8.8 inch touchscreen, navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay, 12 speaker JBL audio sound system, wireless phone charging, a head up display, and heated leather seats. Collision warning, automatic high beams, autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian recognition, lane departure warning, and other safety technologies are available in the Toyota Supra 2023.

Performance, Engine, And Transmission

Before 2023, all Supra models were equipped with an eight-speed automatic gearbox and rear-wheel drive; this year, a six-speed manual transmission becomes available, although only with the optional turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six. Our long-term 2020 Toyota Supra GR 3.0 (with the eight-speed automatic) put down some very outstanding acceleration statistics on the track, reaching 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and 100 mph in 9.5 ticks. These values improve significantly with the six-speed manual, to 3.9 and 9.6 seconds, respectively.

This puts it on par with the Chevy Camaro SS, Porsche Cayman GTS, and BMW M2 Competition. It outperforms the fourth-generation Supra, which was powered by a 320-hp sequentially turbocharged inline-six.

Despite its high-performance capability, the GR Supra’s suspension is gentle enough to be driven on a daily basis. Its steering is precise, well-weighted, and direct, adding to its enjoyable driving experience. At our test track, the lower-priced four-cylinder vehicle hit 60 mph in 4.7 seconds. That’s faster than the GR Supra’s German cousin, the BMW Z4, which hit 60 mph in 5.0 seconds. The one drawback we discovered with the performance of our long-term GR Supra was how easily it got stuck in the snow.

Real World MPG And Fuel Economy

The most fuel efficient GR Supra has a turbocharged four cylinder engine that achieves EPA ratings of 25 mpg city and 32 on highway. The more powerful GR Supra 3.0 still gets 23 mpg city and 31 highway for the automatic and 19 and 27 mpg for the manual.

That outperforms the Camaro, the Cayman GTS, and the M2. The six cylinder GR Supra outperformed its highway rating of 34 mpg on our 75 mph highway fuel economy test route, while the turbo four scored a remarkable 38 mpg. Visit the EPA’s website for additional information on the GR Supra’s fuel efficiency.

Cargo, Interior, And Comfort

The driver focused interior is cramped, and while the double bubble canopy adds some headroom, the tallest drivers will feel squeezed. Cargo capacity is equally limited, although the cargo section (accessible via a hatchback) is large enough for two carry on baggage or approximately a week’s worth of supplies. We were able to put four carry on luggage under the rear seats during our testing.

The inside of the Toyota is quite similar to that of the Z4, so people who are accustomed with BMW switchgear and infotainment controls will feel right at home.

Connectivity And Infotainment

In terms of infotainment, the central display on the GR Supra is an 8.8-inch device with a very lightly reskinned version of BMW’s current iDrive interface. A digital gauge display is standard throughout the board, with a different appearance as compared to the Bimmer.

Navigation and Apple CarPlay are both available, however, Android Auto is not. A 12-speaker JBL audio system is available as an option, but given the size of the GR Supra’s interior, we believe the basic 10-speaker audio system will be enough for the majority of buyers.

Features For Driver Assistance And Safety

Toyota includes a slew of driver-assist systems as standard on the GR Supra, including automatic emergency braking. The optional Driver’s Assist package adds technologies such as adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitoring. Visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites for further information on the GR Supra’s crash-test results. The following are important safety features:

  • Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian recognition is included as standard.
  • Typical lane departure warning
  • Automatic high beams are standard.

Warranty And Maintenance Protection

Despite numerous similarities with the Z4, the GR Supra offers somewhat longer powertrain coverage but falls short of the BMW in terms of limited warranty and free regular maintenance.

  • The warranty lasts three years or 36,000 miles.
  • The powertrain warranty is valid for five years or 60,000 miles.
  • Free planned maintenance is provided for two years or 25,000 miles.

Prices Of Toyota Supra 2023 When New In UAE

Although the four cylinder GR Supra 2.0 loses minimal driving feeling, we believe the ripping acceleration of the six cylinder 3.0 is worth the extra money. We’d forgo the Driver Assist package, which includes adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, and an ineffective lane keeping assist system.

The new six speed manual transmission available with the 3.0 model costs the same as the automatic and is an easy choice. Every GR Supra comes with a one year membership in the National Auto Sport Association, as well as a gratis day at a high performance driving event. And consider this: the money you save by not purchasing the Driver’s Assist package may be used to buy more track time and new tires.

  • AED 179,900 – 180,000 (2.0T GR)
  • AED 207,000 – 213,000 (3.0T GR auto)
  • AED 207,900 – 213,000 (3.0T GR manual)
